Monica Magnussen

Design Director

Originally from Norway, Monica has been working with Hillside since 2006. With more than 15 years professional design experience, her creative approach and in-depth understanding of brand development has been pivotal in helping organisations like Fopp and Edinburgh’s Hogmanay connect with their audience and stand out from competitors.

Alex Simpkin

Digital & Print Desiger

Alex produces artwork across a wide range of disciplines for both digital media and print. Always paying keen attention to both form and function, he delivers work with focussed communication, bold visual impact and considered user experience and tone of voice.

Maria Stoian

Designer & Illustrator

Maria is a gifted illustrator and designer who has won multiple awards in both disciplines. She has a unique style that she adapts to suit each individual project. Her playful illustration, witty animation and technical know-how can add new dimensions to the look and feel of any project.

Neil Dalgleish


Neil is the company’s founder and has been involved in communication design since 1985. Although much of Neil’s time is spent running Hillside’s sister company Hillside Outside, he remains involved in the creative process, able to provide expertise and guidance during development and provides a key role during the creation of ideas.

Fiona Rae


Fiona is our trusty accountant, making a weekly visit to our studio to crunch the numbers that are there to be crunched. When not here, she’ll mostly likely be down in Peebles, helping Neil and the rest of the Hillside Outside team plan for their next big event.
